Yesterday there was a big fire in Griffith Park. More than 600 acres burned, there were countless evacuations, and the footage of the fire was something else. Even though I had been alerted in the afternoon it wasn't until about 10:30 last night when I started watching a little bit of the news on it. (I am not a news watcher).
I went to the internet to see if I could get a summary on the local NBC website and I ran across the following article: http://www.nbc4.tv/news/13279762/detail.html?dl=mainclick Unlike my good friend Queen B, I will not force you to read the article. You do need to go to it though and scroll down about 3/4 of the way where you will see a box with a quote taken from the scene. Please go look at it! Then read on:
Of all the quotes that could have been used from the Mayor, the Fire Chief, the Forest Rangers, or the Victims they chose to highlight a Griffith Park visitor who stated: "Ash was falling in our pasta salad". I about died of a heart attack when I read this, I mean now that truly is a crisis-LOL. I wonder who made the decision to add this of all quotes to the article? How did it then get by the editor, I don't even know what to say-LOL Again
